Amazon Fisherman

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Vicki Santello

In a fleeting moment this fisherman looked up at me and my companions going by in our skiff taking photographs. I was struck by how different his relationship with the river was from mine. He was making a living and I was on vacation and that realization still haunts me each time I look at this photo.

Location: Upper Amazon River Basin
